These folk-art pieces are individually
handcrafted of steel, with the most charming
details. If left to oxidize naturally, the
surface will turn to a pleasant rusty patina.
To help retain the existing finish, you can
apply a clear, exterior-grade, polyurethane
sealant (available at most paint stores).
If a sealant is applied, make sure it is completely
dry before exposing the statues to
moisture or sunlight. Polyurethane requires
regular maintenance and a new coat must be
applied before deterioration of the first coat
begins, about once a year.
Note: Being handpainted, variations and
irregularities in shading and color are natural
and not thought of as flaws.
